Major Strategic Town East of Damascus is Cleansed by SAA from Terrorists in Syria

The pocket of FSA East of Damascus is shrinking dramatically. The director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdul-Rahman, said government troops regained control of Otaybah late Wednesday.

"It's a huge victory for the regime, and a big blow to the opposition that is now in danger of losing
other towns and villages around Damascus," Abdul-Rahman said of the army's campaign.

Otaybah is located on a road linking Damascus to its international airport, along which rebels have been transporting weapons and other supplies from neighboring Jordan. The capital's surrounding towns and neighborhoods have been opposition strongholds during the 2-year-old conflict.

Losing control of the town will make the defense of rebel enclaves in southern suburbs such as Douma, Harasta and others very difficult, Abdul-Rahman said. The loss of the arms supply route is a major blow to opposition forces trying to overthrow Assad.
